Your Mother was right!!

Did you know that there is a particular family of vegetables that has more fat-fighting and health-boosting benefits than ANY other?  It’s true!  We’re talking about cruciferous vegetables, and there are a wide variety to choose from…just take a look at all these options!

Brussels Sprouts
Bok Choy
Swiss Chard
Collard Greens

And here are just some of their benefits:

#1 – Improved digestion, satiety, and weightloss!  Cruciferous vegetables are high in fiber — fiber that promotes a healthier digestive tract while keeping you feeling fuller, longer.  In fact, many studies have shown that increased fiber intake leads to lower weight levels and even weightloss.

#2 – Lower levels of belly fat!  One unique benefit of cruciferous vegetables is their ability to fight off dietary and environmental estrogens that we may be exposed to through soy, plastics, and pesticides through a special phytonutrient called indole-3-carbinol (I3C).  Environmental estrogens have also been linked to high levels of belly fat, so by consuming more cruciferous vegetables you’ll be fighting off belly fat stores at the same time!

#3 – Increased Gut & Immune Health!  Even beyond the above two benefits a recent study published in the renown journal Nature Immunologydiscovered that specific proteins in cruciferous vegetables may play an essential role in gut health by boosting immune cell production and ultimately combating bacterial infections, chronic inflammation and potentially even bowel cancer.

#4 – Anti-aging!  Cruciferous vegetables have also been shown through research to boast antioxidant and anti-aging properties.  In fact, one study showed that participants who consumed 1 – 2 cups of cruciferous vegetables a day reduced their oxidative stress by 22% in just 3 weeks!

The list actually goes on and on with regard to what cruciferous vegetables can do for your body, fat loss results, and your health, so be sure to eat more of these “miracle” vegetables starting today!

Don’t tackle a healthy diet all at once

Don’t tackle a healthy diet all at once. Start by replacing empty calories with whole food options. Whole foods include fruits, vegetables, and whole grains – foods that are as close to their natural form as possible. It won’t be long before you realize just how good “good food” feels. Before you know it, your cravings will change from greasy burgers and fries to healthful nutrition.

Here are some simple changes you can make for a healthier diet:

  • Have fruit for breakfast.
  • Clean your fridge and pantry.
  • Get rid of processed food in the process.
  • Buy snacks from the produce section of the grocery store.
  • Say No to an unhealthy food temptation.
  • Consume smaller portions, more frequently.
  • Try eating twice as often and half as much.
  • Eat a food with no nutrition facts label – whole food.
